I am looking for a cosmetically challenged California 1100i or EV if anyone has anything suitable laid about or knows the whereabouts of one.

All of the tinware ie Tank and mudguards will be coming off so ideally I want something that is priced accordingly to reflect the tatty bodywork.

This is to progress a project bike that I want to turn into something resembling a T3 Cali.

Anything found please PM me .

Thanks DarrylBig smile

Did you check out that chap on FB, Tarquin? He's now priced it (a Cali 3) for £1700, which rather implies (to me) that it might fit the 'cosmetically challenged' parameters.

PM sent to you  Barry. Simply cannot find that Cali that you mentioned.

Is it on this Facebook site?

Hi Bill, it's not getting picked up until next week so I will post pictures of it when I get it before I make a start on it.

I ended up agreeing to purchase  a 92  California 111 70th Anniversary model with a genuine  17k on the clock and only 2 owners. Some of the brightwork ( handlebars etc ) has tarnished and will need replacing  but it's complete and should be a little easier to work with seeing as it has no ecu  to rehouse.

Ages since I have had a bike with carbs and never yet a Guzzi so it will be interesting to see how much difference there is between this 1000cc with carbs compared to my FI 1100.

Really looking forward to getting it and the hettle will be on if you fancy a look over to see it sometime.Big smile

This is the bike in the sellers garage at present.

It's complete, has a screen and the leather panniers and apparently starts on the button.

Getting itchy feet now and dying to make a start.LOL
